Did the flood of Noah's day really happen and is there proof?
Something similar was in an article in a magazine years ago and I know that the ark is for real and this video tells why it is dangerous to go see this and proves it is real. This video shows it could now be petrified and no one should ever disturb this because the flood was real.

Only IF you do not sweep all the evidence under a rug, it really happened. The sediment washed out from places like the Grand Canyon, the watermarks on the Great Pyramids and the seashells on top of the world's tallest mountain all indicate it did for a fact happen.

The Bible itself is the principal evidence that the flood on Noah's day really happen.
Jesus himself mentians the flood.Source(s): Bible

According to a controversial theory proposed by two Columbia University scientists, there really was one in the Black Sea region. They believe that the now-salty Black Sea was once an isolated freshwater lake surrounded by farmland, until it was flooded by an enormous wall of water from the rising Mediterranean Sea. The force of the water was two hundred times that of Niagara Falls, sweeping away everything in its path.
Combine that with 40 days of heavy rain and melting glacier ice packs a mile thick, and yes, it's not unreasonable, maybe even probable.

The flood which supposedly happened to noah did not happen. There is no evidence to support that. The flood was supposed to be a global killing event precipitated by the christian god. The world was supposed to be repopulated by this one righteous family and we know that didn't happen. The DNA record alone refutes it. I find it interesting that the theists on here keep on downplaying the significance of the event and even try to get you to forget about the old testament and concentrate on the new testament. But without the old testament, you lose original sin. Without that, there is no need for god to clone himself so he could kill himself to atone for the sin in the world which came about as a result of your gods rules. No old testament, no need for jesus to 'sacrifice' himself. Oops.

Well, there is proof of a massive flood. Now consider the story of Noah originated some 6000 years ago, translated by clergy,with little knowledge of the forgoten Hebrew language the scrolls are written in. Since then, this has been retranslaed numerous times so the bible version of this is just loaded with flaws,one is grave errors in event timelines.
Since mans existence on earth, the only one extreme flood was nothing the bible claims, Unknown how much rainfall or how long any rain happened, but enough to cause erosion's, rivers, valleys, even todays dry lakes, yet not enough to cause life ending extinction. Scores of animals including humans survived this on various continents.
"A flood" did happen, for that there is lots of geological "proof" In Noah's day,is speculative at best.
These ancient scrolls still exist, locked away in a vault. Degreed linguist have access, but still the ancient Hebrew has yet to be properly translated. In the day, there were barely over 6000 words in spoken vocabulary,putting it to modern language, would be a painstaking task.Source(s): Too many scientific journals.

Noah's flood is not a dogma of the Christian faith. In other words, belief in a literal global flood is not necessary for salvation. Anything that is a dogma you have to believe was a literal historical event. LIke for example the Resurrection of Jesus Christ is a dogma. You have to believe Jesus physically rose from the dead, it was a historical event, and your salvation depends on whether or not you believe it. Noah's flood never became a dogma because probably 1. it was not a historical event. 2. it doesn't matter if there was a flood because it means nothing for your salvation. The bottom line I wouldn't spend a lot of time on it, I would focus on the New Testament. Fundamentalists get all wrapped up in Noah's flood science but it is not doing anything for their salvation.

There is a place in Turkey where they believe is the remains of Noahs Ark. It is a place locate in Mount Ararat and you can see the outline if what appears to be a boat, with remains of metal or some type of wood where it lays. The shape is massive and is interesting to look up. Many believe that this could be evidence for the flood taking place.

No, it did not, and a great deal of evidence says that it did not happen.
